OOC Chat

Postby jcftao » Fri Apr 26, 2019 6:09 pm

Hey everyone,
I'm going to start a very simple Whitebox:FMAG sandbox game and would love to have anyone interested to join in.
I'll have a few house rules and keep it very simple. I hope that we can explore a campaign world that I am working on.
The farther you explore, the more of the world we will create together.

We will start with lowly peasants and your fate, be it rags or riches, lies solely in your own hands.

If interested, drop me a line here and we will get started.

Thanks, John Feldman (jcftao)

Goals that I want to attain with this new play-by-post. [Work in Progress]

1. I will do my best to post three times per week. If I can keep up this pace, I believe that together we can keep up interest in the game.

Any suggestions that you as players may have?

From Dicelog.com:

Rolling "3d6" 7 times

1: 2 + 5 + 4 = 11
2: 3 + 5 + 4 = 12
3: 6 + 6 + 2 = 14
4: 5 + 6 + 6 = 17
5: 1 + 3 + 3 = 7
6: 2 + 5 + 2 = 9
7: 3 + 2 + 2 = 7

sum: 77, average: 11.00

STR 11
INT 12
WIS 14
DEX 17
CON 7
CHR 9

I will replace my CON roll with the 7th roll, much to my advantage, which gives me:
STR 11
INT 12
WIS 14
DEX 17
CON 7
CHR 9

Much better!

With that CON I shall be a CON MAN (aka, thief). If you are allowing thieves. If not, I shall be a dragonborn dark paladin.

Well done, laddie!

I was thinking maybe you could be a S'MOgre...half smurf/half ogre Paladin with a sprinkling of Abyssal and Kender thrown in....but thief works too.

Don't buy equipment yet.

Before you name the lad, would you like to be an urban born fellow from the realm of Eyre? Or perhaps a rural rogue from the highlands of Falmead? Or even a runaway from the desert City-State of Mathos?

Those of you wishing to play, please roll 7 times (3d6) in order...STR, INT, WIS, DEX, CON, CHR...and the last roll can be used to improve any one of the other scores...

or use the Standard Array 15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8 and arrange to suit your taste.

If rolling your own scores, choose your favorite real dice and roll them at home or use a dice roller online...whatever you prefer.

Don't worry about hit points, gold, or equipment...just give me the raw scores for now.

Post your results in the OOC Chat and I will make a Character topic shortly.

A cleric, eh? Oh, the bitter irony! [inside joke].

Yes, you will have to hold your horses, young cleric. You'll get your holy orders soon enough, but for now, we will say that your character has felt a calling to serve his god.

Question for you...do you serve Eos? He is the god of law (good creatures, most humans, even elves and dwarves worship him often with different names)...humans that are lawful or neutral will look to Eos.

or do you serve the Green Man? He is the wild god, the god of nature, pagan you might say...also called Silvanus.

or do you serve the lord of chaos, Orcus! This would be done in secret if you are in human lands...rumours have it that some human warriors pray to Orcus to give them strength to dominate their enemies...not nice fellows for sure!

In essence, the pantheon is simply...Eos (Good), Silvanus (Neutral), or Orcus (Evil).
